Sharing Jobs

How do I refer my friend?

Referring your friends is easy with Social Sourcing!

In fact, there"s two ways to share:
1. Share at any time!

When logged in, you can copy the URL in your browser and paste it in a message to your friend.

Additionally, any time you click a "Copy Link" button, it will generate a unique URL that will give you referral credit when you share it.

2. Share a specific job.

When logged in, click "Recommend Job to Friend" on the job"s detail page. From there you can copy and paste your unique referral link into an email.

(the available social networks may be different than pictured)

How can I track my referral?

Tracking your referrals:

1. After sharing your unique referral link, your friend/contact will enter the site as a referral from you.

2. Once your referral starts their application, you will receive an email notification making you aware of their activity.

3. Within this notification you will be presented with the option to share your insight regarding the candidate. This endorsement will go to TIAA"s Talent Acquisition Team.

4. Should you wish to follow-up further on the applicant"s status, you will need to reach out to the appropriate TIAA recruiter and/or hiring manager.

Can I upload my friend"s resume?

Uploading a Friend"s Resume:

You sure can! Each position on the Social Sourcing site has an "Upload Friend"s Resume" button. Clicking this will prompt a window to appear, requesting certain information about your friend. Fill that out, upload their resume, and submit.

Once you"ve done that, an application will be started on their behalf with you tagged as the referrer. They"ll receive an email allowing them to continue the process, while you"ll be able to endorse the candidate, providing more insight to recruiters.

What are the "Top Referrers"?

Social Sourcing Top Referrers:

How do I become a "Top Referrer"?

The simple answer is... recommend jobs!

Each Social Sourcing user is given a score based on their activity. Points are awarded for sharing links, generating clicks, and/or getting someone to apply.

To view your stats, check out your referral activity on the portal page.

What if I don"t want to be included in "Top Referrers"?

No worries, we understand.

Your privacy is important to us, and thus, any user can prevent their activity from being shown on the Social Sourcing site. To do so, access the "Privacy" section of your user settings.

By deselecting the option to publish, your information will no longer appear in the "Activity Feed" as well as the "Top Referrers" sections.

Contact Us

You can email user support with any questions you have about the Social Sourcing product.

Please note that TIAA's Recruitment Department sets all policies related to your Referral Program. If you are a current or former employee of TIAA, we suggest that you direct all policy-related questions to HR.
